Kayle Park Selected as NJCCA DI Player of the Week
On Sunday setter Kayle Park was selected as the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference DI Player of the Week. On Wednesday when the National Player of the Week was announced by the NJCAA the committee felt Kayle’s work for the week warranted national recognition and she was also named the NJCAA DI Player of the Week.
Kayle led her team to 2 victories in less than 24 hours. First she accumulated 58 assists and 20 digs in only 4 sets in the win over Eastern Arizona. Park also hit an amazing .571 with 4 kills on 7 attempts, and added 1 service ace. In the 4 set victory over ERAU on Saturday she gathered 31 assist and again added 4 kills on 8 attempts for a .500 hitting percentage. She only grabbed 7 digs against ERAU but she grabbed 6 blocks.
Park’s totals currently for the season include 373 asists (7.46 per set), 48 kills (.96 per set), 117 digs (2.34 per set), 10 service aces (.20 per set), and 25 blocks (.50 per set).
Kayle is the first Roughrider volleyball player since Hayley Shackelford in 2009 to be named NJCAA Player of the Week.
